Sick DayBeing sick is never fun. I never got sick very often, even as a child- but this one is particularly stubborn. "(Sniff, Hack!) Ugh." I can't help but make disgusting noises like this- it's not easy to be attractive when your entire body weight (in snot) happens to be dribbling out of your nose.
"You know, Cindy-" He starts, but I interrupt with another coughing fit.
"(Cough! Cough!) Hang on." I reach for the (number 17, 000) tissue and blow. "Ew." I don't know why I have the particularly nasty habit of glancing inside the tissues I fill, but I do, and then I regret it. He rolls his eyes at me- he doesn't understand this habit of mine either. So I grin and hold it out to him.
An eyebrow goes up, reaching upward on his huge head. "Not...really. Why is it that you always do that to yourself?" He says, smile growing as he shakes his head.
I glance down at the pile of filled tissues laying around me. "Ah duno." I say, my stuffed nose blocking my ability to talk.
EasterRemember what you love,
you with sand in your teeth
and the feral burn of hunger
in your eyes.
God sends his regrets.
He made you grasping and slow,
in a late hour
when the wine washed low.
Remember what you love.
Fall to your knees in the toss
and the swell, quell
the appetite of the cold black sea.
Beg blessings for your home
and the salt-sick trees.
Reach what lies near:
the fat-faced child, the sweet-soft lamb;
tether the tantrum, trickle the blood.
Offer psalms to what is holy,
whisper the name of what you love
as it bobs in the bleak mad sea.
Keep in Touch!
